No interfaces shown on an R81 CP6200 after HFA44 uninstall

Hello ,


I am facing  very strange issue on a standalone R81 CP6200.

I've installed Take44 in order to check whether a problem regarding DNS and SecureDNS gets solved. I then uninstalled the hotfix and after that the system boots , recognizes no interfaces at all and InitialPolicy gets installed.

Below I cite an excerpt from the boot process. Note the no igb drivers when it boots as well as the "ls: cannot access /sys/class/net/*/device: No such file or directory"


After logging in expert mode and doing an ifconfig, then no interface is shown apart from docker0 and loopback

Has anyone seen it before ?

I actually had to do same thing the other day in the lab, but never experienced the same problem. Did you try rebooting it again to see if anything changes at all?

Hi Nikolaos_Liakop,

Please check the following WA:

  1. Reinstall required take
    • If missing – return to JHF44 and import the take as drivers will reappear
  2. Revert to snapshot
  3. Clean install


We are introducing a fix to the JHF, we'll update once we know the JHF number and release date
